Welcome to Phoenix and the Charming Coronado Guest House. We are centrally located within minutes of Downtown Phoenix and only a short drive to Sky Harbor Airport.
The most 5 star reviews in Phoenix! No cleaning fees and no security deposit. Those are silly.
The guest house has a keypad for entry so no need for key exchange.
The Coronado Guest House is located behind our historic 1937 home and is located in the heart of the Coronado Historic Neighborhood. We are within walking distance to many great restaurants and downtown Phoenix is only a 5 minute drive away. Downtown Phoenix is home to numerous sporting venues such as Chase Field and US Airways Center, as well as the Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Science Center, Heard Museum, and the Children's Museum. Many great restaurants are within a 5 minute walk and we can recommend a few of our favorites for you. The 7th St. and Oak bus stop is only a 5 minute walk. We are also only a 10-15 minute walk to the Oak Metro Light Rail station which can take you to Downtown Phoenix, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Tempe with its eclectic Mill Avenue and home to Arizona State University, and Mesa with it's wonderful Mesa Center for the Arts.
Your private guest house has a queen bed that accommodates 2 people as well as a fold out couch that can sleep one person.

Day trips from Phoenix include:
Sedona - 2hrs.
Jerome - 2 hrs.
Tucson - 2 hrs.
It's hard to do the Grand Canyon as a day trip and really enjoy your time there. Instead fly into Phoenix and spend 1 or 2 nights here then spend a night in Flagstaff or at canyon itself. 4 1/2 hr drive from Phoenix.
Also it's not too early to Inquire about Super Bowl 2015 being hosted in Glendale, AZ. We will be renting out the guest house and our main home as one rental which can accommodate 6-8 guests with 4-5 night minimum. Downtown Phoenix will be home to most of the NFL activities. It's listed for $1500 per night. That's less than $200 per person and far less than hotels will be charging. Please inquire before booking.
Laundry facilities, backyard, fire pit, outside dining.
Interaction with Guests
I'm always around as I work from home so chances are I'll be here to show you around - unless I'm traveling the world. In that case just call me if you need anything.
Our neighborhood has been referred to as "Funky Town" by Phoenix Magazine. There are lots of artists who call Coronado home as well as many great restaurants within walking distance. Many people (like us!) keep chickens in their backyard and I've even see a gentleman take his miniature "service" pony for a walk down the street. Welcome to Funky Town.
The nearest bus stop is on 7th Street and is only a 3-4 minute walk away. The closest light-rail station is only a 10-12 minute walk from the guest house.
Other Things to Note
Wow that's a lot of yellow stars.
Try the fresh eggs for breakfast or try the local restaurants. Do NOT eat at McDonalds. The shower is STRONG and you will never feel so clean...so sing in the shower. The toilet flush is strong and loud...don't let it startle you. Travel more and be happy...go on and book the ticket. Pets are ALWAYS welcome.
Enjoy your stay in Phoenix.
Sky made us feel incredibly welcome. Our flight was cancelled coming out to Phoenix, so we ended up having quite a long travel day. It was nice that Sky was so accommodating to our new flight schedule. When we finally did arrive, it made us smile to see such a comfortable looking guest house with muffins waiting for us on the counter. Everything about the guest house is perfect--from the location to the amenities to the fresh eggs in the fridge.
We were also very appreciative that Sky was so quick to respond to our questions before we arrived. The entire experience was a positive one. We came out to Phoenix to golf and attend spring training baseball games. The Coronado Guest house was perfect for everything we needed it to be. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Phoenix.
Sky was very welcoming. We only met him once so we definitely had a lot of privacy. Which was great since we were on vacation! The chickens were so adorable and there were plenty of farmed eggs in the guest house fridge. As well as some beer and other beverages. Unfortunately we got stomach poisioning from a festival so didn't get to explore much around the neighborhood. But from what we saw, it looked pretty funky and fun! The metro is not a far walk which was great. Also, we had to depart very early when we left and thankfully the key is just a punchcode so we didn't have to worry about returning a key. This guesthouse was a treat!
Fantastic experience, charming casita. Sky is a very friendly and very helpful host. Clean and comfortable with great tourist info. I would highly recommend to anyone.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Sky's guest house for three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Not only is the guest house comfortable and charming, but Sky is a welcoming and gracious host. We were happy to be centrally located in Phoenix and really felt like we had a little home away from home staying here. The bed is really comfortable and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Nice, neat and clean space. Sky does an excellent job of keeping the place inviting. Love the chickens and quiet neighborhood. Centrally located and quaint.
Sky, thanks for a providing such a great place at a great price.
Very cool place, we liked it so much we stayed in all night and looked at the plethora of travel books. Will definitely recommend to friends, and will book again next time we're in Phoenix.

I married my best friend on a beach in Mexico, rode bicycles with the locals on the streets of Beijing, hiked the hill towns of the Cinque Terra in Italy, explored 12th century Cambodian temples, swam with sharks in Bora Bora, been offered a beer on the Great Wall, sat 5 feet from wild orangutans in the Sumatran jungle, found heaven in the Alps of Switzerland, played with baby elephants in Thailand, tried speaking Arabic to shopkeepers in Marrakech, found pura vida in Costa Rica, saw what a wall can do in Berlin, marveled at Eiffel's Tower, experienced Dutch tolerance in Amsterdam, walked the Cliffs of Mohr, hiked Machu Picchu, bobsledded down the Olympic track in Innsbruck, rode a camel on the beach in Abu Dhabi, meandered through the Siq to witness Petra's beauty, and shopped my way through Istanbul's Grand Bazar.
The world is my sandbox.
Can you pass me that little plastic shovel please?
